I just got back from a wonderful trip to Mexico, and as we all know what’s slated to come our way in 2012, it seemed only fitting that my first post of the new year be a Sketch of a Mayan temple. This is Ek Balam, in Qunitana Roo. Sketching while traveling is one of my very favorite things. Something about observing a place and translating what you see into two dimensions imprints the scene in your memory in a way that nothing else can.

Also, started the year of with some good news. it sounds like one of my Pieces is going to be honored in Print Magazine’s 2012 Illustration annual!
